You Can Lead A Horse To Water, But You Can't Make It Drink

 Q:        
You Can Lead A Horse To Water, But You Can't Make It Drink by Cristina Nuta -

This idiom refers to the fact that one can show the people around him the way to do things, he can offer good advice but he cannot force them to act or to make them take it.

It is the best way to suggest the fact that everybody has his own personality and the possibility to choose what he considers to be the best choice in his life no matter the circumstances. Very frequently we have come across the fact that our best friend has a certain problem and we try to give him/her the best advice. It usually happens that your friend need an advice because he/she has broken down with his/her boyfriend. As an outsider you can see things differently and you are objective in giving the advice and it can be the best one for your friend. But you cannot convince your friend to d o what you tell him/her to if he/she doesn't want to do that.

Generally, people prefer to do things in their own way which they consider to be the best. But they need to learn from their mistakes even if they repeat the same mistake two or more times.

On the other hand, we cannot force people do what they don't want to because each one of us has his own preferences and wishes in life. For example, parents cannot oblige their children to choose to study a certain domain of activity just because they want that. A person would choose what he thinks it matches with his own personality and ambitions because this is the only way he'd feel proud of his option and he would enjoy what he does.

Therefore, we can say that our point of view is very important when making decisions that respect our life and our problems with the persons that surround us. And that, moreover, it is essential to make mistakes because it is the best means to understand what we have done wrong and that we shouldn't repeat it. However, it can sometimes be very late to repent for having done something wrong and for not having taken into consideration the advice a close friend has given to us.
